Los Coyotes Band of Cahuilla and Cupeno Indians is headquartered in Warner Springs, California. They are governed by a democratically elected tribal council. Their current tribal spokesperson is Shane Chapparosa.
The Cahuilla and Cupeño languages are closely related and are part of the Takic language family. Cupeño and Cahuilla are endangered. Alvino Siva, an enrolled tribal member and a fluent Cahuilla language speaker, died on June 26, 2009. He preserved the tribe's traditional bird songs, sung in the Cahuilla language, by teaching them to younger generations of Cahuilla people.
